Allahumma Ajirni Fi Musibati Hadith

Narrated that Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say:

“There is no Muslim who is stricken with a calamity and says what Allaah has enjoined, ‘Verily to Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allaah, reward me for my affliction and compensate me with something better’ – but Allaah will compensate him with something better.”


She said: When Abu Salamah died, I said: Who among the Muslims is better than Abu Salamah, the first household to migrate to join the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? Then I said it, and Allaah compensated me with the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

Muslim 918


Calamities and disasters are a test, and they are a sign of Allaah’s love for a person, since they are like medicine: even if it is bitter, you give it to the one you love, and for Allaah is the highest description.


In the saheeh hadeeth it says: “The greatest reward comes with the greatest trial. When Allaah loves a people He tests them.

Whoever accepts that wins His pleasure but whoever is discontent with that earns His wrath.”

Classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

Calamities are favourable for the believer in the sense that they store up recompense for him in the Hereafter; how can it be otherwise when he is elevated in position and his bad deeds are expiated?

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“When Allaah wills good for His slave, He hastens the punishment for him in this world, and when Allaah wills ill for His slave, he withholds the punishment for his sins from him until he comes with all his sins on the Day of Resurrection.”

Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (2396); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.

The believer seeks reward via calamity, and the only way to obtain it is through patience, and the only way to be patient is through steadfast faith and strong will.

Remember the words of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him):

“How wonderful is the affair of the believer, for his affairs are all good, and this applies to no one but the believer. If something good happens to him, he is thankful for it and that is good for him. If something bad happens to him, he bears it with patience and that is good for him.”

Narrated by Muslim, 2999

There are things which, if the one who is stricken with calamity thinks about them, that will make the calamity easier for him to bear.

You should not that panicking will not make the calamity go away, and in fact it makes it worse.
